Once the roof section is attached/bonded, use the same process where the rear section joins to the rear wings behind the doors. Pull out the new rear wing slightly to allow the application of epoxy to the rear of the panel.

Push the new rear wing into place and secure with temporary screws, before drilling every 2-3" ready for rivets.

Countersink rivet holes and insert rivets.

After epoxy has dried (approx 24 hours) sand off any high spots before applying UPOL P40 chop strand paste for the first fill over the joins from GRP kit panel to metal.

Then use UPOL EASY 1 filler to get the shape right. Then Top Stop to fill any small pinholes etc.
